|APPLE PIE,||JAMES KYLE'S HOT BUTTERED RUM,|
|SOME GOOD SCOTTISH FAIRE,||SEE YOUR RECIPE HERE,|
Best drink you will ever eat!
1 Gal Apple Juice, not cider
5 Each Cinnamon Sticks
1/2 Cup Honey
1/2 fifth Good White Rum
1/2 Tsp. Lemon Juice
Pour 1 gallon of apple juice ( not cider) into a large kettle or pot.
Put in 3 to 8 cinnamon sticks and nutmeg.
Heat over fire until good and hot
Add 1/2 cup of honey and lemon juice,
stir and heat until honey is dissolved.
Remove from heat and add 1/2 fifth of good white rum , stir.
You can drink it hot or allow it to cool.
Tastes just like you are eatin apple pie!!
BEWARE this drink can be dangerous..it will sneak up on ya quick.
Take two quarts of water in a "coffee pot" or vessel for boiling-----.
Bring the water to a good boil about 1/2 way to the boil.
Place ONE stick of BUTTER (not Oleo into the pot....)
TO THIS add two "tight" hanf fulls of RAW SUGAR(NOT brown or refined) This is often called Sugar-In-The-Raw......
Let the mixture come to a FULL boil and assure that the sugar is completely melted...
STIR with a HOT IRON rod.
(This will add a little different taste to the mixture and YOU WILL LIKE IT.)
After the boiling is complete add one pint of good rum dark rum is best but I have used cheap rum and no-one was the wiser...... (The butter and sugar will hide the volitals in cheap rum....)
((DO NOT ADD THE RUM TILL TEMP IS BELOW 160 DEGREES F.))
NOW! Stir the mixture vigouriserly with a hot IRON rod once again and serve HOT .
IF PERSONS DRINKING THE MIXTURE LET IT GO COLD IT SHALL BE NOT GOOD...
This shall be their own faUlt NOT YOURs.....
I have been complemented on this mix and found it to be historicaly accurate.... I think that this is the mixture Robert Rodgers used NOT using Brown Sugar....
It is best in the winter... you shall be ask to make more ---
so have a good supply of butter and sugar and rum on hand.... ;-))
Great to serve at Christmas and New Years Eve parties

These should keep ya warm on a winters trek!!!
Has been famous since 1475 when the Duke of Atholl captured his enemy the Earl of Ross by filling a well where the Earl liked to drink with this magical potion. Ross (not surprisingly) drank deeply and was taken. As to what became of the rest of the well contents... because this took place in Scotland it seems very unlikely it was wasted!
3 heaped tbsps oatmeal
2 tbsps liquid heather honey
Scotch whisky to make up 4 cups (2 pints)
about 2 cups water
Put oatmeal into bowl, mix with water to create thick paste.
Let stand for 1/2 hour.
In the next step, the aim is to save the liquid; not the oatmeal.
Strain liquid through fine strainer into bowl.
Press with back of spoon to extract all liquid, throw away oatmeal.
Mix liquid with honey, stir with silver spoon until well-blended.
Pour into quart bottle, fill up with whisky, cork tightly.
Always shake before using.
Serves 4 - 6.
The het (hot) pint was a traditional form of punch, bought at the public house and carried home through the streets at Hogmanay (New Year's Eve) in large copper toddy kettles several hours before midnight to help family and friends "bring in the New Year".
4 pints mild ale
1 tsp grated nutmeg
1/2 cup (4 oz) sugar
1 cup (1/2 pint) Scotch whisky
Put ale into a thick saucepan Add nutmeg, bring to just below boiling-point.
Do not boil! * Stir in sugar, let it dissolve.
Beat eggs very well, add gradually to beer, stir all the time to avoid curdling.
Add whisky, heat up. Do not boil! *
Pour liquid from saucepan into heated tankards, back and forth.
Serve when pouring drink back and forth enough makes it clear and sparkling.
Het pint can also be made with white wine and brandy instead of ale and whisky.
* If you boil liquor, the alcohol vaporizes into thin air...
